    ...went overseas and criticized US policy, and the right wing melted down over it, calling him a traitor, etc...

    Now we have Republican politicians that are currently IN OFFICE doing exactly the same thing...and I've not heard a peep out of these people.

    IMO this is worse, Carter is basically a bumbling EX office holder, kind of like the crazy old uncle.
